Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Hotel and Conference Center Colorado Springs
Better then I expected!
Purchased the room on the internet, then after reading some reviews, we were nervous, but figured for the price we paid, we could afford to walk out and go somewhere else. The staff were very friendly, nice and eager to please. The room was clean as any of the other hotels where we had stayed on this vacation. Also the rooms had been remodeled recently. However, the hotel is old, the resturant was not in opperation that evening, but they shuttled us to a very nice resturant not very far away. All in all for the price we paid, our experience was fine.
Loved the LE BARON
I booked this hotel online and then read all these reviews.but don't believe everything you read. we got there and everything was wonderful. the hot tub was awesome. the pool a little cold for my blood. the rooms were just as good as any other hotel. the staff was excellent. the only complaint was i kepy losing my money inthe coke machine, which they refunded. i would stay here again any time. It was wonderful. these people who were unhappy were from another planet. stay here it is worth it!
Less than Expected
Booked the hotel online. The lobby was a true representation, but the rooms were lacking. We just wanted a cool room and a quite place to sleep. The 1st room's A/C stopped working within 30 minutes. The 4th room finally had a working A/C. But after about an hour the noise and racket from the unit made it impossible to sleep, and we travel with ear plugs! We will not be staying again, nor should you.
Nice Older Hotel!
This is an older hotel just west of downtown Colorado Springs in an older neighborhood. The staff was VERY friendly going out of their way to please us. Being an older property, it had a few issues but evidence of remodeling work was apparent. There is an onsite restaurant with a very limited menu.
One big concern I had was security and safety. The last night we were there, I was looking for something out of my vehicle in the dark parking lot. I was approached by 2 people trying to pan handle some money. Fortunately, they went on their way but given the darkness and no barrier between the street and neighborhood, it could easily have gone bad.
What a dump! Do not stay there.
What a DUMP of a hotel, this hotel should be closed or bulldozed. The overall appearance of this hotel, I would never recommend or ever stay there again. In otherwords don't waste your money!
We have been under renovation since March of this year. All our guest room balconeys have been remodeled along with our second and third floor guest corridors. The parking lot has been resurfaced and we remodeled our lounge by adding seven new television monitors and furniture. These projects along with many others are scheduled to be completed by mid June. We are truly sorry you have experienced the inconviences of our renovation projects. We trust that these projects will enhance our hotel to those future travelers.
What a wonderful hotel!
What a wonderful hotel staff! From the sales and catering staff to the front desk staff, I would recommend this hotel to anyone! They all did a fantastic job!
The hotel is certainly not posh, but a good value for the money. It could use a little "sprucing up", but all in all was what we would expect for what we paid. The best part was the friendly service.
Everyone we came in contact with was anxious to please. The breakfast coupons were a great value -delicious. With a rental car, we had no problems getting anywhere we wanted to go.
Needs lots of repairs
Lobby is impressive but rooms need reparis and paint, poorly lighted, swimming pool missing tiles, hot bath not working, and exterior of place in need of paint. No questions asked when you leave. I would not stay there again.
Lobby is beautiful and impressive, our room was neither. There were problems with our TV (they were fixed quickly), the air conditioner was very noisy, the bathroom was dingy and while we were close enough to walk to the downtown area, the neighborhood made us very uncomfortable after dark. We will not be staying there again until the rooms are upgraded.

... one of the best gazebos in america) the town has a population of 640 so you can imagine how beautiful and quaint it is. We decided to have a hot drink at the pantry first ( it was pretty chilly) 3 delicious hot chocolates and a cup of tea later I discovered they dont take american express and there was no atm in the town. I didnt know what to do and neither did our waitress I think. She ended up saying that it was ok not to worry about it but I couldnt accept the drinks ...
... the top of the mountain like you would not believe but we weren’t there that long. I just couldn’t get warm. I crawled into bed and shivered for a half hour. Then we got back on the road and did the Pike’s Peak drive AGAIN for the sunset. We hit traffic and were 5 minutes late (they shut the road down to people heading up at 5) but Jym talked the ranger into letting us try to head up. They were very kind and actually radioed ahead ...
Well for the first time in a long time I had to set my alarm last so didn't sleep just waiting. We were up early to go golfing with Monty at the Cheokee Ridge Golf Course, we just did 9 holes but had a great time. We won't discuss the scores, if we would of done 18 holes the scores were good, thats all I'm saying.
Next back to the house to get the Van checked out with oil change, Monty already had fixed the vent duck ...
We were staying with an Army buddy of mine, Adam & Karin Munn & family, whom I haven't seen in about 16 years!! How's that for a phone call.... "Adam, Karin, haven't seen you in awhile. Can my wife & I... and our 4 kids stay with you for a few days??"
Of course the Munn's are great ...
Day 2 So being me I woke up at about 13:00, Monday afternoon. My friend asks me if I would like to see where she works, I said sure. Next thing I know I was at the United States Air Force Acadamy which was nestled in really nicely with the mountains. We went to the Visitor's Center first, it was big and full of things to buy... I only got a little keychain caribiner. Next we went up to the ...
